While 2017 has already been an active year for celebrity home sales, there are still plenty of properties that are yet to find buyers. Here’s a look at five celebrity homes that have yet to find new owners in 2017. This list represents both the newest and most expensive celebrities homes that have yet to be sold this year. With one day left in the year, will any of these properties sell by midnight? Let’s take a look!
Mark Hamill – $2.95 million
It’s been a tough year for some celebrities when it comes to selling their homes. Take Mark Hamill, for example. The Star Wars actor put his Malibu home on the market in March for $2.95 million, but so far there have been no takers. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom house sits on 1.6 acres and has plenty of amenities, including a swimming pool, spa and views of the ocean. Not surprisingly, the estate also includes a screening room with seats for up to 12 people and an office with an attached bathroom.
Van Jones – $1.35 million
As one of the most prolific real estate investors in the nation, it’s no surprise that Van Jones’ home would be worth a pretty penny. However, his Atlanta mansion has been on the market for over a year now and has yet to find a buyer. It was originally listed for $1.35 million, but the price has since been dropped to $1.25 million. Even with the lower price tag, Jones’ home has still failed to attract any buyers. The Atlanta businessman is looking to streamline the property by offering pieces of furniture or artwork as well as taking care of some minor maintenance issues before finally selling. With this strategy, it seems like Jones is confident that someone will buy his house at some point – he just wants to make sure they’re making an informed decision when they do.
Hugh Laurie – $1.25 million
Hugh Laurie, best known for his role as the snarky doctor on House, has been trying to unload his Hollywood Hills home since early 2016. The British actor originally listed the property for $4.25 million, but slashed the price several times before ultimately taking it off the market in September.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom house spans 3,000 square feet and sits on a half-acre lot. Laurie purchased the home in 2007 for $2.65 million. He’s spent the last few years renovating the property, which features white brick exterior walls, an open floor plan, and a backyard with sweeping views of Los Angeles.
In 2015 he put his six-bedroom English country manor on sale for $6.75 million.
House ran from 2004 to 2012 on Fox TV network and aired 192 episodes.
Mariah Carey – $8.6 million
Carey’s 5,000-square-foot duplex penthouse has been on and off the market since December 2016, originally listed for $9.8 million. In April, the We Belong Together singer cut the price to $8.6 million. The lavish apartment comes complete with four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and sweeping views of Central Park.
Steven Spielberg – $45 million
Steven Spielberg’s longtime Malibu estate first hit the market in October of 2016 for $45 million. In May, the legendary director dropped the asking price to $30 million, but even that was not enough to attract a buyer. The oceanfront property includes a main house, two guesthouses, and a pool house, all spread out over 6 acres. With no buyers yet, it looks like Spielberg may be stuck holding onto this property for awhile longer.
